John was not scheduled as a vendor only as a sponsor. Due to a last minute work detail he is unable to attend. However, do expect John to attend the next show we have. This show also conflicted with a previous engagement that John had.
Check out the vendor list on the website. Green Tracks, Dallas Museum of Natural History, and USFW had to cancel at the last minute. Other than those, every vendor listed should not only have a website, but their species availability listed as well.
That could at least save you a long drive! (your happiness is worth more than $5!)
